    Great location by the river and lovely walks nearby. Needed to drive into town for the restaurants and markets but this was not a problem.

    I would suggest adding to the description that there are tenants living in the downstairs part of the house. It wasn't a big deal during our stay but may have affected our decision to book had we known we wouldn't have access to the backyard etc. Otherwise great location, very nice house with a beautiful set up. Highly recommend.

    An exceptional location, only 10 minutes from the town centre and right by the glorious river mouth. You need to accept being in fairly close proximity to the neighbours, but they are lovely and while they are sociable, they're not late night party-ers so that's no problem. The house comfortably accommodated our large family group and was a brilliant venue for our Christmas celebration. It's clean and the kitchen is well equipped. What more could you ask for?

    We were not far from our venue for the Master games we were involved in. Can sleep up to 8 people in beds and could have sleepers on the couches as they were very comfy. The house had everything we needed and will try to get the whole team to stay next time.
